Data privacy challenges are garnering worldwide attention, with data positioned as the new oil. When reports and interviews around data privacy are covered by the New York Times, 60 Minutes, and CNN, among others, it is time for companies to take notice. The European Union’s General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018. Enforcement has become real, as evidenced by the $57 million fi...

There has, in recent years, been a significant paradigm shift in computing.  The original computing model was that you would write a generalized program and bring separate sets of data to the program.
